On the spectral geometry of manifolds with conic singularities

Abstract:  In this talk we consider the heat kernel of the Laplace-Beltrami operator on a Riemannian manifold. On any closed smooth Riemannian manifold the heat trace expansion gives some geometrical information such as dimension, volume and total scalar curvature of the manifold. On a manifold with conic singularities we derive a detailed asymptotic expansion of the heat trace using the Singular Asymptotics Lemma of Jochen BrĂ¼ning and Robert T. Seeley. Then we investigate how the terms in the expansion reflect the geometry of the manifold. Can one hear a singularity?
